An eight-year-old marriage has been dissolved by a Jos Central Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama 1 over the husband’s inability to fend for his family.
The wife, Samira Makama, had earlier dragged her husband, Muhammed Musa, before the panel of judges made up of Malam Sadiq Adam and Mr Hyacenth Dolnanan.
The panel said all efforts to reconcile the estranged couple did not yield a positive result.
The judges ordered the petitioner and respondent to go their separate way.
Additionally, the court ruled that the respondent, Musa, should provide monthly upkeep for his children and pay their school fees.
The wife had pleaded with the court to dissolve their marriage, saying that her husband, who she has been married to for the last 8 years had failed to cater for her and their two children.
She told the court that her husband had initially divorced her twice according to Islamic rites and that he had also cut off her conjugal relationship.
She said that she was at the court to seek the dissolution of her marriage to the respondent.
